XO enhances Latin American reach through agreement with Neutrona Networks

XO Communications is increasing its power to target international opportunities, particularly those in the Latin American telecom market, by establishing new network-to-network interconnection (NNI) agreements with Neutrona Networks.

By working with Neutrona, which is a neutral and independent Latin American service provider, XO will be able to immediately improve its international coverage for business clients that need connectivity in Mexico as well as Central America and South America. 

To connect with Neutrona, XO has established interconnections from its points-of-presence in Dallas and Miami.

While it did not provide many details on future expansion plans, XO said that this agreement is one step it is taking to enhance its overall international coverage process.

"Expanding into Latin America through Neutrona is the first phase of our strategy to broaden significantly our international coverage to meet customer needs," said Jake Heinz, senior vice president of marketing and product at XO Communications, in a release.  "Our international connectivity strategy is based on teaming with respected providers with strong regional network footprints."

Latin America has been a priority for XO for a number of years. In 2010, the service provider established its fourth international gateway along the U.S.-Mexico border in McAllen, Texas. It also operates Latin American gateways in Miami, San Diego and Los Angeles.
